Heart and Flowers for Italy

I just finished stitching and finishing a ruler holder and pin cushion/scissor holder to be sold to help the Italian earth quake victims. I am finishing up with the instructions and I will post pictures tomorrow. It was a great learning curve for me. I have been trying to figure out how to keep the Mother of Pearl rulers in their sheaths. Ruler and scissors for the set are from Kelmscott Designs. I finally figured out how to get magnets to work with non-metal items....I soooooo love it when I solve my own problems. ebeth More to come this weekend!

Got to love it!

How great is it to be able to go with you kids and let them have fun and still get work done. Got to love it!!!! It will be great to not be in the heat all day today-that was the only down side to yesterday. It was hot! Ebeth

Warped Tour and Stitching

Recovering from being in the heat all day yesterday with the girls. We packed up and headed out early in the morning so we could one of the first people to get into Warped Tour.
This is the back of the girls as we just got into the park. They were trying to find Reverse Day Care for me. Well we found it, but it was a tent with a movie running and it was dark and and crowded. I was not going to be able to stitch, yes I was going to work on this off we went to find me some shade. The girls were worried that I would get lost during the day. It was funny to see them in reverse mode worring about where I would go if I was not parked somewhere or on a leash....
This is the girls in line at Sleeping with Sirens.
The view I had most of the day.
The new piece I was working on during the day. A new Adam and Eve and yes, they have their clothes on..... off to tackle the day. ebeth

Off Topic, But Maybe of Interest.

The kids and I went to an Annual Tools for School music event hosted by Robert and Sheri Pope. Rober is a member of Kona Music and they are a local band that plays an array of music. Robert had other musicians come over and share their talents for the cause. A great time was had by all. Robert cooked some fantastic food and the dessert table was wonderful. Kids, dogs, babies and adults all came together to enjoy an afternoon/evening of food, music and great company. Kudos Robert and Sheri! Ebeth and kids....


I am getting dangerous. I have figured out how to add links to other sites and will be doing this to help you stay informed about subjects that are discussed on this blog. I would also like to add that I am going to slowly update my old posts and add links where they are needed. I want to send a big thank you to all my supporters for purchasing 'Jumping Cat'. This is a popular piece and I am happy that so many people like this design. The American Series is up and going. I am working on George Washington and Benjamin Franklin at the moment. I hope to get started stitching on them soon. They should be out in the next couple of months. Thank you again for your support and keep cool in this heat. Ebeth

Release of Betsy Ross

Betsy is being mailed to Hoffman Distributing Company and Norden Craft today. Hopefully they will be in stock by the end of the week. Betsy Ross was credited to helping George Washington design the flag for the United States of America in 1777. While some are sayig this never happened, it cannot be disclaimed that Betsy Ross was a flag maker/upholsterer and that she supported her family with this occupation all of her life. She has been quoted as saying that she 'never knew what it was to want employment.' In her time in history upholstery business owners not only upolsteried furniture they were also makers of flags. Besty Ross did make flags for a living during her life time can be considered a role model for women in the work force. Betsy supported her family through three marriages and seven children, two who died in infancy. She was not one to allow life to get her down. She should be applauded for her contribution to our country and her work ethic that she carried to her grave. Ebeth

Day in the Dames neighborhood

I had a wonderful day at the Giant Stitch In held by the Dogwood EGA Chapter. These girls work hard at making sure that we have a great time. So many wonderful things to get, the Stash to Stash was great. The Silent Auction was tantilizing with Jeannette and Ronnie going to a drawing to see who would win this lovely lap frame from England. Ronnie was the winner....I tried Jeannette... I won a cute strawberry fob on a pair of scissors made and donated by Dorothy. Thank you my dear. I hope to post pictures tonight or tomorrow. Well, I am off to work some more. A very grey and weird weather day here in the Hundred Acre Woods. We are having a Black Widow problem under the studio....hopefully that will be cleared up soon. May you have a great stitching day! Ebeth

It is quite like an icky Hundred Acres day here in Marietta. We had the Huffelumps and Woozels visit last night. The thunder and lightening was unbeliveable. I turned off the printers and the computer. I usually do not because I have them on a battery back up system, but it was so horrific that I felt I needed to do this. So off and unplugged they went....I have been waiting to see Piglet fly by or to see Pooh's bum sticking out of a Rabbit hole. With the horrid weather is a horrid it has been PJ day here in the Hundred Acres woods. We are drinking tea, playing Playstation 3 games, computer surfing and finishing up some stitching. I think if I can press on-Betsy Ross may be shipped out tomorrow to be photographed.... Off to stitch, will keep you updated on the events of the weird and wonderful world of the Talledo's Hundred Acre Woods.... ebeth
